Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Navigator than in the Land Rover Defender, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lincoln Navigator will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Land Rover Defender.

Convenience

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Land Rover Defender is clearly the choice over the Lincoln Navigator for pulling heavy loads. The Land Rover Defender has a little less horsepower than the Lincoln Navigator.
